My name is Tom Woodling. My wife and I have lived here in Yucca Valley on Canyon Drive for 10 years. In that time, the only contact we have had with Town Hall was to report potholes and runoff (dirt) on the street.
This was always dealt with in a timely manner. HOwever, Canyon Drive over the last 20 years, according to my neighbors, has suffered a lot of erosion, in some places clear down to the dirt.
So a couple of months ago, I called the deputy town manager, Shane Steuckle. After a brief discussion, he said he would look into it. I really didn’t think much would come of it. A short time later, he called and said our street really was a mess and he would do his best to have our street repaired. Still, I was somewhat pessimistic, as I figured we would be pretty low on the totem pole.
Mr. Steuckle did, however, give me a time frame as to when our street would be repaired. Not only did he do what he said he would do, but he did it ahead of time. The town road crew showed up and did a fantastic job. Before the work, you could not cross our street at night without tripping. Today, the street has been repaved and is so smooth, it could be used for skateboarding.
Thank you, Shane Steuckle and the road crew!
